Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) provides myocardial protection for patients who are at risk of myocardial injury during cardiac surgery. The haemodynamic support is crucial in patients with significant and critical coronary artery disease undergoing revascularisation procedures. Traditionally, the femoral arterial access is the preferred route for IABP insertion. This is, however, not always feasible especially in patients with concomitant occlusive peripheral vascular disease. The trans-brachial route can be used as an alternative for percutaneous insertion of the IABP. We report the technique for left trans-brachial insertion of an IABP, and illustrate our experience with two patients requiring urgent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and for whom the IABP duration was over 50 h.
